Abstract: Sign language is a mean of communication among the deaf people. Indian sign language is used by deaf for communication purpose in India. Here in this paper, we have proposed a system using Euclidean distance as a classification technique for recognition of various Signs of Indian sign Language. The system comprises of four parts: Image acquisition ,pre processing, Feature Extraction and Classification. 31 signs including A to Z alphabets & one to five numbers were considered in this paper.
Keywords: Indian Sign Language (ISL), Principle Component Analysis (PCA), Sign Language Recognition (SLR)
